Jessica Smith

Hi! I was born and raised in North Carolina and attended North Carolina State University, in Raleigh. I received my Bachelor of Arts in Communication – Interpersonal and my Masters in Special Education – Learning Disabilities.

My teaching career started over 20 years ago, and I’ve held a variety of roles in education through the years. I began my career as a Special Education Teacher in Wake County. Ten years ago, I started a new position as a Behavior Specialist for Harnett County Schools.

My current role is my favorite – Reading Recovery Teacher! I have served in this position at several schools in Harnett County. This is my fifth-year teaching Reading Recovery at Anderson Creek Primary. It is the place to be! I love the students, staff and being a Reading Recovery Teacher! I am passionate about working with students and teaching them the gift of reading.

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, attending concerts and sporting events, crafting, painting and gardening.
